Factory closures slow shipments from China

     Hong Kong Port
  Hong Kong Port

Operations in major Chinese ports are being disrupted by supply chain problems that could last for months.

The origin of the problem is the forced closure of factories, implemented to improve air quality in and around Beijing, Shanghai and South China’s Pearl River Delta, under a national air pollution action plan, which expires at the end of the year.  Some factories have been completely shut down, others will be closed for an unknown period.  The sectors affected include everything from chemicals to textiles.

Delays can occur in suppliers’ ability to fill orders, manufacture products and in shipping as the holidays approach in North America and Europe.
